no connection between that mitt romney and this mitt romney. you've talked about the remarkable things he's done on wall street. what he di with bain capital, what a great american success d y as well, there's a huge disconnect between that mitt romney and the mitt romney that we're seeing bumblg around on the campaign trail. it seems that while presidential elections elevate some like reagan and clinton, they diminish others like mitt romney. o fundamentally kind of technocrats and businesspeople look at what he did in massachusetts and say he got a lot of stuff done, worked with the rest of the government, et cetera, et cetera, got health care done, this is how government should function,ut athat ppen outheel obvio cagnil tt he was pushed into places, into corners, into positions that he may or may not actually believe in, but which portray him and create an image of him in very, very different light. and so now we are left with this kindf bum eling candidate w isn't even really sure wtis sedut saying he wanted to repeal the bush tax cuts. then he had his own 20% tax rate cut with no way to
, we talk about the 47% video, i'm hearing more and more people in the romney campaign as every day goes by, they understand more and more that they made a huge mistake with that libyan press conference. i'm not going to say that it was sort of that september 15th moment, the economy is sound, but john mccain last time, but i can't tell you how many pollsters are telling me that that was -- it made him look unpresidential. "the wall street journal" leading with their editorial today, "the libya debacle." the more we're finding out about benghazi, the more it looks like a gross security failure. and you know, something the romney campaign told me, this is the biggest mistake we made on libya. if you give the media a chance to talk about politics or policy, they'll talk about politics every time. and we get out in front of it, so all everybody talked about those first few days was the politics of it. but the policy looks, willie, more and more like a gross security failure. you've got so many warnings coming in and so many warnings that were ignored. now the administration, the lead o
is going to talk down romney's chance of winning. they are going to show mr. obama way up in the polls, so republicans go why even bother voting. >> stephanie: there we go again. reporting the actual polls, karl. >> did you assume for a minute that you could use numbers without being accused of being a liberal, and this is what the republicans are doing. for the last couple of weeks it has been, look, the polls are really tight. and for a while they had a point there, the national polls were really tight. but we don't elect our president by the national polls. it is through the electoral college. >> stephanie: yeah. and the other number he apparently didn't want to mention is the fox news poll. which shows obama way ahead. >> that's where things get inconvenient. >> stephanie: yeah. he is at the point where he is approaching double digits in florida, ohio and virginia and the calculus said -- calculus from my right-wing friends is an advanced form of math -- the calculus said if romney didn't win florida he could not come up with the electorates to win at all. and now no
in 2008 and hasn't gotten done and mitt romney talking about the plan he has to take this country forward. so i think it's an opportunity for both candidates to talk about where they want this country to head, the vision they have. i think unfortunately, you're going to have president obama make a lot of excuses as to why, when he was on that stage four years ago, not much of what he ever said was going to happen occurred. >> you know, on the subject of winning and losing, chris christie, big supporter of mitt romney, has come out and said he expects a big win for governor romney in this debate. we talked to brad woodhouse yesterday from the democratic side. this is what he said about christie's comments. >> i think he set the bar high for mitt romney, and the bar should be high for mitt romney. i mean, he's gone through this campaign. we're five weeks out, soledad, and he's not said how he'd pay for his tax plan. we're five weeks out, he hasn't said how he'll shore up medicare or social security. to protect benefits instead of cutting them. the bar is really high for him. i think chris c
. >> right, we've got romney talking about this and the media saying that this is, you know, him insulting, inelegant, a problem talking about it, what it is a referendum on obama policies and the state of the economy. what we've seen are incomes falling and people have less income due to paying taxes on and getting more he deduction and less tax income liability. ahead of that, too, though, we've seen a lot more complexity introduced into the tax code, we've got deductions, if you fill out your own 1040 how difficult it is if you're not taking the standard deduction, what your tax liability is. this is something coming down the pipe with a romney administration or more republicans in the house and senate we should be be considering when he we're talking about tax reform. stuart: okay, but it is accurate to say that in the obama years, a larger proportion of people are not paying any federal income tax and that the spike occurred in the obama years in part because of obama politics, is that accurate? >> well, the spike has occurred, really, over the past 20 years and i've seen incomes fall

york city public library. they're not ready, but as we talk specifically about mitt romney and what you're talking about what congressman ryan's budget plan, mitt romney's specifics are more about vouchers, so that people can choose school choice systems like a charter school for their own kids. where is the distinction in that? because one thing heralded in chicago is the the fact that 52,000 kids there actually went to school -- excuse me, let's go into brian williams with mitt romney. >> thank you, everybody. let me assure you there are more burly people with weapons in this building right now than ever before. but enough about steve's senior staff. we are very grateful that governor romney has chosen to join us today. we have heard from the president so far today in his interview with savannah guthrie as steve mentioned while he was appearing here on tape, he was it at the podium over at the united nations. governor romney has asked to address you you before we begin the q&a. so he will to that. i will remain off to the side. i'll come up, lead the questioning. and then we will take
this, talking to senior officials in the romney campaign, they believe after a tough week or ten days, the last several days, they have a little bit of a breeze at their back. they say the race has stabilized. you dig into the numbers. what is the most important issue in this first debate? the economy. look at this poll. which candidate would better handle the economy? the president, 49%, governor romney, 48%. a dead heat. the president has to defend his record. governor romney not only needs to attack his record but to convince voters he has a better place to take them if he wins the election. and you know this full well, the reason this debate and what both candidates say in the economy is so important is the friday morning after the wednesday night debate, we'll get the latest unemployment report. if governor romney could turn in a strong debate performance and another tepid jobs report, there's a chance for this race to change after debate number one. >> if you're the obama campaign, you're looking at all these numbers in our brand-new poll. what's most encouraging to you? >> repo

't they come here and talk about what is happening to the jobs in this country? how can it romney talk about jobs in this country when his company, bain capital, which he founded, has ties to, and can influence today, will send 150 jobs to china right now. most of them will lose their jobs november 5th. they will get on the unemployment line and vote at just about the same time. >> tell us about your book the silent majority. who are these folks and why are they silence? >> i really do think that those who are deeply concerned about war, those who are concerned about the growing inequality in this country, people who are deeply concerned about climate change, forest fires, droughts -- we are talking about the dust bowl era times in this country, not only in this country, but around the world, those who are concerned about the fate of the planet are not a fringe of the a minority, not even a silent majority, but the silent majority, silenced by corporate media, which is why we have to take it back. host: one could argue that with the explosion of social media, with everything being said back
. he said it, talking about libya attack. you think -- you know here is such a nice guy, romney saying he jumped gun, he sort of at same time, he is attacking the guy, saying you know. >> probably nice enough but facting are to get this job, you have to prove you are prepared to wage the kind of campaign that says you can run the nation, he is not doing it right now. lou: who won that engagement last night on 60 minutes ? >> i think that romney did, president obama looking defensive. and when he looks defensive he is not obama 2008. >> i do not agree, i think that own ebobama swept it he was cled looked human, and took characteristic that americans like about him, his likability. lou: i thought this first two parts, the two men were responding to questions, that was a tie between the two. have you two smart knowledgeable guys, second part with issue of leadership, scott pelley, and crop, and i mean, romney was terrific, i have to tell i, obama of flat as he could be. that is the reason i give the night to romney. >> thank you, both. appreciate it. >> thank you, lou. lou: a slow weekend
the hispanic strategy that the romney strategy has been let's talk about the economy. the cuban americans and puerto ricans and in hopes we can peel off just enough of them because maybe that will be the trick. the problem is in florida of the hispanic electorate has changed quite significantly. the fastest-growing group are dimond puerto rican latin american immigrants for whom immigration is a defining issue in a litmus test issue. roughly a third now. so i suspect he's going to have a hard time winning florida in part because of the changing demographics of the latino electorate in that state. >> what you think about all of this? to years ago they brought on the brand new party and the new type of republican party that maybe wouldn't make what of what appear to be some of these mistakes the romney campaign is making. what do you make of all of this? do you think that is correct? >> christa will stipulate what has been said with immigration for example there is a fascinating moment during a republican presidential campaign that happened last year during which you have mitt romney, new g
this fellow romney. [ booing ] >> yeah, i agree with you. >> we talked about the boss that might fire you. he is also like your date's dad that you are constantly meeting, and he is awkward, and you are awkward. >> i appreciate you being out here in the warmth like this. i can't get over you guys standing out here in the rain. you are the best. thank you so much. i appreciate you coming back to say hi to me and have me come in the flesh. >> i heard the strains of a beautiful musical number a moment something. the strains of the national anthem. >> he is an elitist and he is out of touch. >> i love ohio i love america. guys. >> there is something about romney that people cannot connect or relate to. >> check it out, gang i had a little free time and i designed my own campaign pin. >> wow. that's quite a guy, isn't it? that's paul ryan. wait a second, romney rooip, romney, ryan. there we go. all right. that's great. >> oh sweet jesus. >>and now to my point. that is a whole bunch of bunk! the powerful my steal an election but they cannot steal democracy. septic disasters are disgus
this is a relentless campaign on the president's side and they recognize all the pitfalls. >> let's talk about romney's soft sell. the president south with an ad. romney has an ad out where he looks straight at the cameras, kind of that gauzy, i'm talking to you, i care about everybody. tom, how much damage does he have to repair from the 47% remark? >> what's striking to me the number of conservative commentators lining up against him. charles krauthammer in the "washington post" is talking about he needs to goback big. he needs to be more defined in his policies, especially about the middle east. romney turned out to give the president air cover. there are serious questions about what happened in libya in the absence of security, and what is our middle east policy, but romney's missteps really have given the president more camouflage than he would have expected. we'll learn a lot more next week when we have the rumble in the rocky mountains. >> that column, a conservative column asking for more details has been written every week by somebody about mitt romney for the last six months. there's your p

to be maybe moderate some of its message. when governor romney talked about he was trying to talk about i can't get maybe 47% of the country, i can't really get their votes because they're on the receiving end of government largesse, he called it inelegant and yet i understand exactly what he's saying in terms of if you have someone promising everything and you're only going to tax rich people to deliver everything to them, i mean, that's very attractive to people that are on the receiving end of things. you're not going to get them to vote for you. is there a better way to moderate what you're trying to say there? how would you have said it? >> the way to say it for a country to be successful, all of us have to strive to be better and we have to give people capacity to be successful. the fact is that right now we have these big structural problems in our country, part of it relates to education, part of it relates to our fiscal problems. we need to start solving them and grow our economy at a higher rate. if we were growing at the rate that governor romney proposes, 3.5% or 4% over a sustain
will be. the last four years he has been our president. lou: talking about governor romney. >> here is what i'm looking at for wednesday. that one of the first times president obama has been pushed the last four years. seven the white house have not served there. never tell the president reagan did not want to year. romney will respect the office of the presidency, but pushing very hard on the president's record. obama has a reputation. lou: i hear you all saying, the six together three of using to be agreeing this is a first impression. sipping a coke at the fountain stand in the local drugstore. and there will be no opportunity for substance, no opportunity for conflict in the debate, substance of any kind. i say to you, there ain't going to be a show. >> there will be lots of substance. the sliver of voters are undecided, one thing we know about them is that they pay no attention to current events. they do have an influence for first impressions. image is very important. if they're is a singer and romney or obama really let fly and catch the other guy in something that is embarra
, careful and not swash buckling types but very carel, and calculating. >> maybe romney is not the great businessman we thought he was. lou: the money says diffently, what -- what do you think is going on here in libya? this artifice you know talk to fbi, and fbi agents investigating it in tripoli. >> this is run out of chicago by david and axelrod, they are trying to get through this economylection -- election. >> i think finally mainstream media which was out to lunch on this sto has begun to engage in the story, you see it now he, there "l.a. times" "new york times." lou: you chose out to lunch, i would go in the tank. >> in the tank. lou: ed klein thank you other of "the amateur." the box office showing some signs of life, animated comedy "hotehotel transylvania at num one. and "looper," and "end of watc watch." up next, no state bailouts. senator jim demint draws a line after the governor of illinois, they say he was floating the idea, he was desperate, and still is and begging for federal help. that means your money and minee to bailout the state o illinois. >> and the united state
people in the romney campaign that i'm not sure frankly i wanted to talk to. you see roger stone, i don't know what mitt's message is sometimes. i think i know what he intends it to be. but he is not getting it out and talking to the middle class. >> the real problem with the mitt romney campaign is mitt romney. he is inauthentic. he comes across as a guy that will say and be anything you need him to be. he is not a conservative. never has been. he talks about reagan but he didn't support him for president in '80 or '84 in the general election. just like his father -- >> those that say reagan was behind and pulled ahead, he was likable. voters have to like the candidate they vote for at a certain level. the problem with mitt romney is he no people think you don't feel he shares yourry sentiments, hopes, desire, aspirations. he comes across as a guy that is mouthing the word and doesn't believe them. >> that's the challenge. if you look at some verbatim responsings to the polls, the challenge is can the relate to my challenges and life? look at the data. people are asked is this somebody
pelosi talked about mitt romney's decision to pick paul ryan as his running mate and the impact his role could have on t future of mecare shlsolac t democrats could take back control of the house. take a listen. >> we have been working very hard to get to a place to put the house in play. we did that by, say, late spring, early summer. but when august 11thkt oou calendar, when ryan was chosen, that made a very big difference because medicare, medicare, medicare, the three most important issues in the campaign, that issue was clarified, focus was on it. we cld n loseb about medicare because if we do, forget democrats and republicans, medicare is gone. >> don't miss the "therachel maw show." >>> rebel forces attacked the capital and reported the deadliest day of the civil war there. 340 people are reported to have diedn fighting across the country. plsi a military te van command center. a skd bomb went off ten minutes later inside the compound and gun battles went on for hours. four guards were killed and 14 others injured in that attack. >>> hers your rst look at some other news going on
out there. >> romney said he can't talk up reform while indulging in groups that block it. >> you know, i think governor romney and a number of folks try to politicize the issue and do a lot of teacher bashing. when i meet teachers all across the country, they are so devo devoted, so dedicated to our kids. some think we haven't been popular of teachers unions, i'm a big proponent of charter schools for example. i get really frustrated when i hear teacher bashing as evidence of performance. what is actually true, if we have got a bad teacher, we should be able to train them to get better and if they can't get better, they should get fired. >> you thie u.s. spends just about as much money as any country per pupil. what are we spending our money on? >> we have got a very diverse country, compared to those smaller countries where all the kids are coming to school pretty well prepared, they're not hungry, they're not poor. in our country, we have got poor kids, some kids that have deep troubles at home and that affects performance, but there's no doubt that we can step up our game, so what

romney in summer marks at a fundraiser taped earlier this year talked about how there is some 47% of the people that do not pay federal income tax. he said that he believes they are -- that they feel they are victims, that the government needs to take care of them, and that they are entitled to housing, you name it. part of that 47 percent said. what would you do about that? do you think that should change? and what do you think, generally, about too many virginians, too many americans being too dependent on government? >> you can say something off of the gulf that you regret. i disagree with what mitt romney's said. it is condescending and divisive. the last thing we need to do at this moment is divide people, one against each other. this nation is divided and of an alleged apart enough. people need to be brought together. as we talk about these long-term issues, the country's fiscal policy, we have to have shared sacrifice. everyone has to help if we are going to fix these issues. we have got an issue on the table that is immediate, that is going to call upon congress and the p
've got with governor romney in this election. they talk a good game about reform, but when you actually look at budgets, they're talking about slashing our investment education by 20, 25%. we've already seen 300,000 teachers that have been fired across the country, and as a consequence class sizes have gone up by 5%. and when you talk with a teacher -- i was meeting with a couple of teachers in las vegas -- they said they've got 42 kids in a class, some of them sitting on floor. it takes a couple of weeks to where they try to redistribute to get it down to 35, 36, 38. that has an impact on kids learning. so reform is important and resources are important, and you can't be for one but not be for the other. >> let me ask you about no child left behind. the administration has granted waivers to states because congress hasn't amended the law. allows them to have not as rigorous standards. something caught my eye absolutely and i'm glad it caught yours too. because of those waivers in some states, some states are permitted to have different proficiency standards by race. in other words, in t
